However, for data-driven organizations, the cloud is today one of the most expensive resources.

Keeping cloud costs under control is a tough job. Cloud assets are fragmented, and most companies need to manage multi-cloud and multi-container inventory. Generally available cloud cost management solutions offers reactive monitoring and lack real-time visualization and cost optimization. The result is that companies lack cost control and observability and unable to correlate cost and revenue changes to achieve unit economics. Customers are been looming for a comprehensive cloud cost monitoring capabilities, including billing visualization, cost optimization and container cost visualization. It became clear that to regain control over cloud spending, a new solution is needed — one that stitches together business monitoring with cloud cost management.

Cloud spending data has not been fully utilized until now — but with the cutting edge FinOps Solutions that leverages AI/ML companies will be better able to control their cloud costs, Kubernetes costs, and SaaS costs.
